World Premier And Biggest CBeebies Party At Resorts World Genting This March School Holidays!

If you have children who love to watch CBeebies, the British Broadcasting Corporation’s children entertainment channels on TV just like my son, it will be fun to bring them to 'CBeebies & Friends – It’s Party Time!' live musical show at Genting International Showroom, Resorts World Genting. The delightful and fun-loving characters from CBeebies will keep little ones entertained with laughter.

“I believe that the children of Malaysia grew up watching favorites such as the iconic Teletubbies with characters and values that stay with them even through their adulthood. Productions such as the CBeebies help cement Resorts World Genting’s commitment to providing a full range of entertainment options for families. These shows are great because they emphasize positive messages and allow parents and their children to bond in shared nostalgia,” said Kevin Tann, Vice President of Events & Entertainment, Resorts World Genting.

The live show is presided over by a lively show host, who introduces the stars of CBeebies as they perform in their own Party Piece segment with a cast and crew hailing from Australia and Singapore.

The line-up includes characters who will need no introduction, like The Teletubbies, Hey Duggee, the Go Jetters and Ubercorn, and Sarah & Duck. Each segment is packed with its own unique and fun hook, from party dancing along with the Teletubbies, Tinky Winky, Dispsy, Laa-Laa and Po and becoming honorary cadets at the funkiest school in town with the Go Jetters Xuli, Kyan, Lars, Foz and Ubercorn, a disco dancing unicorn. Celebrate Scarf Lady’s birthday with Sarah and her best friend Duck, and earn your Hey Duggee teamwork badge with Duggee and the members of the Squirrel Club including Betty the Octopus, Happy the Crocodile, Roly the Hippo, Tag the Rhino and Norrie the Mouse.

Learn, laugh and play with special CBeebies Friends, through song, dance and friendship together, leading into a celebratory finale unlike no other, dancing along with fun giant party balloons. Hooray! It’s Party Time!

Big balloon balls thrown to the audiences for some fun.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Resorts World Genting for the world premiere of the CBeebies. We know that the CBeebies have a lot of fans throughout the country here in Malaysia and that Resorts World Genting is a family entertainment destination known for showcasing world-class family shows throughout the year,” said Nick Larkin, Live Show producer and Licensee of the British Broadcasting Corporation. 

There is no party like a CBeebies party and Resorts World Genting proves that with the global debut of the ‘CBeebies & Friends – It’s Party Time!’ show. The musical extravaganza runs from 16-31 March, 2019 at the Genting International Showroom.

Great Family Bonding Moments Playing Fun Games From Happy Go KL

When parents are so busy with work or doing other important things, we forget that we need relax and enjoy life a little. When I was a small girl, I used to enjoy playing Chess, Checkers, Snake & Ladders, Memory Card, Scramble Word Game and Monopoly. Even as an adult now, I find it still fun to play these games for some family bonding time especially with children. 

Recently I came across two very fun games from Happy Go KL. One is the Lizards and Ladders priced at RM 70 and the other is the educational playing cards priced at RM 35. These two games are from Happy Go KL which is a website for all parents looking for fun activities and outings with kids in Malaysia. 

Lizards and Ladders

Lizards and Ladders is similar to Snake and Ladders but is way more fun to play. This is because the rules of the games are a little different. If you roll a six on the dice, you can get a durian card which allows you to avoid sliding down a lizard's tail. If you land on a tapir or pangolin, you move forward 2 steps and if you land on a hornbill or tiger, you move forward 1 step. Hope you can avoid landing on the Orang Utan because he will eat the durian which means you need to return the durian card in the game.

You can change the rules of the games to suit the age of the players. You can make it harder by setting the rule to roll an exact number to get to the finish square. My children and I love to play this game when we have free time.

Playing Cards

This deck of playing cards has cute animal pictures and comes with educational cards about Malaysian animals. You can play Memory game, Snap, Go Fish, Old Maid, Crazy Eights or Switch, Spoons, Rolling Stone, Beggar My Neighbour or Cheat. For instructions on these games, you can scan the QR code at the back of the box. 

Children can learn more about animals from reading the educational cards. 

For every game sold at Happy Go KL, RM 1 will be donated to nature conservation in Malaysia. 

Hope you get these two games and have fun playing with your children! For more information, yo can visit Happy Go KL FACEBOOK

Creative Products From HKTDC DG Studio (Hong Kong) Brings More Daily Fun

Recently, Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) showcased the best of Hong Kong’s ingenuity in a pop-up exhibit in 1 Utama Shopping Centre and Da Men Mall. HKTDC DG Studio Promotion Event featured trendy lifestyle products from twelve Hong Kong Local brands ranging from gifts and premiums, household appliances, fashion and accessories, home decors, 3D wooden puzzles and many more. I came across some of their products at CM3, 1st Floor of Sunway Pyramid last month and was very impressed with their creativity. To read my earlier blog post, click HERE

The twelve DG Studio’s brands are Artiart, Cardhoda, Eco Concepts, Hoobbe, Hyone, Kilovest, Konstar, MH Blocks, Paris Garden, SOAP Studio, Tea Lab and Team Green. These twelve brands specialize in specific lifestyle products, usually offered as personal or corporate gifts and premiums. What makes these products different is its creative, trendy and sometimes quirky edge it takes on daily consumer products.

峰, 香港亚洲品牌代理有限公司 联合创办人, Eyka Farhana (Actress), Venice Min 陈慧敏
(Social Media Influencer), Dahlia Shazwan (TV Host) with her daughter Freda and Ms.
Hoh Jee Eng – Director, Malaysia, HKTDC 何淦杏, 马来西亚代表,香港贸易发展局
celebrating Freda’s first birthday

Artiart is an innovative design household products brand that produces home wares, drink wares and business-related items with a creative, quirky fun and colourful take. Its AR Iceberg Suction Cup, with its grip bottom, and 100% leak proof Elegance Suction Bottle is heaven-sent for accident-prone individuals and are the company’s best sellers.

I really like their spill-free bottle because the bottom has some kind of suction and your drink will never spill but it is still easy to lift it straight up to drink. You will never need to worry about children spilling drinks anymore.

Konstar specialises in small household appliances. Its design innovation simplifies how time-consuming household chores are done. 4 of its products have since been awarded the RedDot Design awards. “I still can’t get over how fast it took for me to peel an apple with the Super Apple Peeler. It does in practically seconds what usually takes many minutes to do. The Super Apple Peeler received the reddot award 2014 honorable mention. The Salad Master which clinched the reddot award 2014 is equally genius. I will not go back to conventional methods!” said TV Host/Personality Dahlia Shazwan who demonstrated the products at the event.

If you love 3D wooden puzzles, you will love Team Green’s eco-friendly and bio-degradable designer puzzles. What I like about these puzzles is that some can move and play music. The 3D Ferris Wheeler, Music Box and Eiffel Tower puzzles are quite a sight to behold and provide hours of entertainment for the receiver of these unique gifts.

For the eco-warrior, Eco Concepts bio-degradable cups and creative mugs made from 100% corn husks are attractive, innovative and fun. Its products are testimony that going green does not have to be boring.

Paris Garden’s home gardening kits allow novice gardeners to grow their own herbs, fruits, vegetables and flowers from home. Anyone can have green thumbs with the easy to follow step-by-step guide included in the gardening kits. The brand’s herb growing kits are especially popular with aspiring chefs hoping to keep a herb garden.

For the ultra-discerning hostess, Hoobbe’s household products are creatively and cleverly designed to make excellent conversation starters when hosting guests at home. Forever injected with a dash of quirk and fun, its Wooly Pins Pushpin, Floaty Duck Salt & Pepper Shaker, Right Cake Measuring Cups and Thanks Giving Salad Server are bound to put arouse interest and raise smiles.

Those who enjoy the finer things in life, Tea Lab, as its name suggests indulges in all thing’s tea. Tea lovers will find the process of brewing a cup of tea more fun with the brand’s creative tea infusers and tea making accessories. Its unique tea scoop and infuser are firm favourites among the tea drinking society.

Tech-enthusiasts will love Hyone’s range of products. It markets smart and stylish design solutions for all occasions, with its focus on mobile phone gadgets and electronic accessories. Its Chic Crystal Ring that attaches to mobile phones to serve as a phone stand and fall proof Stand Firm Cup are best sellers. “Hyone’s Mini Selfie Stick with bluetooth remote and mini tripod is a super useful for Instagram personalities like me.’ said, Venice Min a social media influencer.

The tech-savvy would also love Cardhoda’s range of card protector wallet and name card holders. Its aluminum case prevents malicious parties from unscrupulously reading cards containing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Near Field Communication (NFD) chips for fraudulent activities.

For the young at heart, MH Blocks are micro-sized construction brick toys to indulge the inner-child. Its miniature version of the classic HK Kowloon Bus and HK Cross Harbour Ferry are popularly purchased as uniquely Hong Kong gifts.

SOAP Studio’s collaboration with famous artist b.wing’s adorable representation of familiar superhero characters such as Wonder Woman and Batman in its gift products and collectors’ items are sure to warm the hearts of superhero fans and make them go “Awwww…”.

For those that seek a unique twist in daily items, Kilovest makes various products, like watches, bags and passport holders, all in the ever durable and versatile silicone material.

“The products from the 12 brands under DG Studio are truly interesting. I am glad to be associated with these names and I am sure that Malaysians who value creativity and interactive quality products, made well with good material and workmanship would value what we have to offer.” said Hoh Jee Eng, Director, Malaysia, HKTDC.

• Parkson Elite at Pavilion KL
• Parkson at 1 Utama Shopping Centre
• CM3 at Sunway Pyramid
• Times Bookstore at Pavilion KL
